My kids aren’t what you’d expect. I have no birth children. I have no adopted children. I have no god-children.
I teach a sunday school class at my church and I want to inspire them. Inspire them to live better. Inspire them to love God, themselves, and their neighbors.
If I can make a difference in their lives, I will feel that I haven’t failed.
I want them to look back and know that I really cared about them, that they changed my life. Because they have. 3 years ago
Overheard my kids saying how they really liked the fact that I enjoy trying new things and experiences. 3 years ago
To inspire them through travel, the best education.
To inspire them through kindness and through showing my curiosity and enthusiasm for life. 5 years ago
I’m not going to stop talking to my 16-year old even though he’s been unbearable this past week with his attitude. I remember being unbearable when I was a teenager. I thought I wanted my family to leave me alone. Then they did and I felt terrible. 5 years ago
I am aware my kids learn much more from watching what I do than what I tell them. I am going to work on being less snapish with them. I hear them snap at each other and think “well, why wouldn’t they, they sound just like me”. This is one I can definitely work on and make some progress, soon. 5 years ago
Someone told me that going to Brazil to volunteer is admirable and a great example for my kids. It was a great compliment! 5 years ago
They really make me laugh and they have kind hearts. I do wish my 16-year old would get a job though…bless his kind heart… :) 5 years ago
My son is blowing off school and telling me education doesn’t get you anywhere, “you don’t need education if you have a good idea” I said, “Well, do you have a good idea?” I’m at a loss. 6 years ago
to use their imginations. I think my sons do that alot! More than anything the way I try to inspire my sons is by getting them to try new things and by being a good role model for them. 7 years ago
my older son wants to be a pro basketballer. what he is good at is math and writing. I tell him about accounting – not so he’ll be an accountant, but so he’ll get a good business background. because what I think he really wants is to make a lot of money and boss people around (sometimes we call him “the little king” which really irks him). 7 years ago
Inspire them to be everything that they can be;
to be comfortable in their own skin with who they are, no matter what;
to make real changes in the world for the greater good;
to love and protect each other and the world around them;
to be truly happy 7 years ago
I’ve got a 5yr and a 2yr, and it’s much more “be the dad” than “be the model” right now, but my little girl is already asking about other kids dads and how they act. What a freaking crisitunity parenthood has turned out to be. I’m trying hard not to get into the “I’m not your friend, I’m your dad” kinda crap… cause I don’t have textbook “friends” myself… A+B=C, and C is new and exciting. And I am totally rambling. 7 years ago
Just placing it under another goal:
track long-term goals here, instead of as individual goals7 years ago
My daughter says that I have already done this. I’m not sure but I think you’ve got to keep on working at being a good parent. 7 years ago
I would like to inspire my kids to do whatever it is that they want to do (as long as it’s legal!!) when they grow up. I started college at the age of 30 years old so hopefully this will inspire them to learn that it doesn’t matter how old you are, there are always ways in which you can better yourself to reach your dreams. 7 years ago
I have a 14 year old daughter and I love her very much. She is growing up so fast and this is exciting. I want to get to know her better and to really listen to her dreams, passions and fears. 8 years ago
They have loved it that the house is clean. And making routines for them, with hand-drawn pictures they look at themselves, they are off and rolling, and today, they were done with their morning routine by the time I got out of bed! They’re 3 and 5! They made their beds, got dressed ( not an easy thing to do tat this age in the summer, and washed up.
They are quite inspired and inspirational. This is fun! 8 years ago
I’ve decided to create smaller goals, as FLYlady would say, small steps! So, to start I would like to (1) do an activity from this book every week: “Spirit Games: 300 Fun Activities that Bring Children Comfort and Joy” by Barbara Sher; (2) continue to read to my kids everyday, but pick a book they haven’t read in a while each day, (3) do an activity outside at least every other day (fly kite, walk dog, garden).
I’m hoping this is doable, because I have either chronic fatigue or some other god-awful vague disease, so I need to pace so I don’t end up unconscious on the couch—not very inspiring. 8 years ago
my 9 year old loves flash games and movies. not always age appropriate ones either. I’m trying to get him to learn flash so he can make his own movies. the limit here is I don’t know flash well enough to teach him. so that’s another thing on my list. my 7 year old is very good at drawing and storytelling. I want him to get more into storyboarding and collaborating with his brother. one of these days we’ll get it together. I just need to keep up the effort. 8 years ago
